I have a theory that , I believe I discussed previously on radsafe. This 
theory holds that there is an unwritten rule in all journalism schools to the 
effect that any student demonstating a knowlwdge or understanding of science and 
technology is precluded from graduating. This would account for Caldicott and 
her ilk gettiing their crap is so readily accepted and published by the 
sycophant news media. The more outrageous, the greater probalility that the 
story will be accepted. Fear sells, or at least, it gets our attention.
My theory might also account for the success of many advertising agencies and 
public relations firms.
